No, not by default; thats why CDF is working on a specification for
them. So that authors can actually design usable content with meaningful
navigation and have it work the same in multiple implementations.

All of which is possible at user option, not precluded by having a
standardized defauly focus and navigation scheme, and thus a poor
argument against having this well specified.
